Cool Christmas Carpet

Tips & Tools

Christmas tree rug

Before we refinished the hardwood floors, the area near our bay window featured a prominent circular black stain. It was obviously left by a Christmas tree stand and water trapped beneath it, built up over years of happy holidays. It took a good deal of bleaching and sanding to get rid of that sucker, and damned if we’ll let it happen again.

We put a plastic tarp under our tree stand, which costs zero dollars and therefore works great for us. But the Party Dress carpet from Flor is adorable and at $60, it’s not too over-the-top pricey. It’s also not so Christmasy that you couldn’t find a home for it somewhere else the rest of the year. The cutout shape remind me of Brocade Home‘s frou-frou modern  stuff, at about half the price.

Comments, Thoughts, and Feedback

Ryan had this to say on 12.10.07:

And when I was putting up the tree this weekend I just just thinking that I needed a carpet to go under the stand. We have a fake tree – both a green one and an aluminum one – but the weight of the tree in the metal stand kind of digs into the floor. I like the cutout pattern around the edge which keeps it interesting, especially since I don’t really like tree skirts.

We love to hear from you, dear readers.
